Workers at Vast-Auto Distribution in Brampton, Ont. have ratified a new collective agreement after a week on the picket line.
The workers, represented by Unifor, were striking over wages that were significantly lower than those of their colleagues in Quebec doing the same work, as well as having to split the cost of benefits with their employer.
Starting wages will immediately rise to $14 from $12.70 an hour, and by 2020, they will start at $15 an hour. The top rate will be $17.16.
On the other hand, management and employees will still split the costs for the benefits plan equally.
